One of the hottest countries on Earth is installing air conditioning outdoors and painting roads blue in a bid to keep cool.

Temperatures in summer now reach a sweltering 115°F (46°C) in Qatar, where the 2022 World Cup has already been moved to winter to avoid the searing heat.

Last year the tiny Gulf state began using air-conditioning in its football stadiums to keep fans and players cool.

But now giant coolers have been installed alongside pavements and in outdoor shopping malls so the temperatures are bearable for people going about their everyday lives.

And in Doha, the country’s capital, the Public Works Authority has painted the Abdullah Bin Jassim Street near one the city’s biggest souq markets the colour blue to reduce the temperature of the asphalt by 59-68°F degrees.

Roads in Qatar's capital, Doha, have been painted blue because the colour absorbs less heat than black tarmac so the surface remains cooler for longer.


Engineer Saad Al-Dosari said: 'The temperatures of dark asphalt is 20 degrees Celsius higher than the actual temperature because black attracts and radiates heat’

Al Janoub stadium is one of eight soccer stadiums that Qatar is prepping for the 2022 World Cup.

Engineering professor Saud Ghani designed the open-air stadium’s air-conditioning system.

Small vents push cool air at ankle level inside the stadium.

Cooling units stored along a street at the outdoor Souq Waqif market ease stifling evening heat.

Fans equipped with misters blow moist air on evening diners who sit beside cooling units. Overnight lows rarely dip below 90 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer.

Solar panels dot the rooftops around a large air-conditioning building in heart of the Msheireb neighborhood.

Cobblestone walkways at the Galeries Lafayette outdoor mall are equipped with air conditioning vents to cool shoppers as they browse.

The neighborhood’s new Metro station is also air-conditioned.

The Msheireb is designed to take advantage of breezes and features sun-blocking canopies.

The walkway through Umbrella Park in Doha, built to connect the seaside corniche and the post office, helps keep pedestrians out of the hot sun.

The walkway uses umbrellas and plants to create a more tolerable atmosphere for pedestrians.

Construction workers near Lusail Stadium, which will host the first and last games during the World Cup, wear clothing and headgear to protect them from the sun.

A man rests in the shade at the Souq Waqif historic market to escape the afternoon heat in Doha.

See mind blowing innovations.These pictures make me sad about Nigeria. The same crude oil we have. We even have much more resources. Just trying to imagine what it would feel like to live in such model cities as a bonafide citizen.
